Hello from Peter Scherr

Hello folks, I am happy to be a member of this space, this area, this community.  Actually I'm not much of a joiner, but my friend Roland told me about this site a few weeks ago. I tried to join then, but there was a little glitch with the registration process. Up early this morning to check on an overseas communication gone horribly wrong, I figured, bored, having reached an impasse, that I would try again. And it worked this time A little about me. I am 44 yrs old, lived in Hong Kong since 1989. I am a musician. My main focus these days is what I call Creative Music. This is a term that is in common use in the USA, Europe, Australia etc. Music that is often improvisational and follows the musician;s current interests. Is often an outgrowth of Jazz, New Music etc. I once read that it is Jazz Beyond Jazz. This is apt. What I am doing is bringing emerging artists together from the states, (especially the NY "Downtown Scene) australia and europe, creating unique programs of creative music and touring cities in China with them.  The work continues in each project with recordings in my studio and extensive video documentation. My music is meant to upset, disturb, inspire, etc. To challenge the listener's sense of beauty. To open minds about what might be considered music in the first place.   Every year I try to raise the bar in terms of the outrageousness of the music, and also the quality level, the number of adventurous projects etc. And soon, my concerts may also feature gogo dancers! Though this past year, I did rather less performing and spent a lot of time working on learning Putonghua, and also doing a lot of administrative groundwork for the Creative Music in China project. So my music was on skeleton crew mode. But I did keep practicing my beloved bass, and I was in NY for 6 weeks this winter, playing music with my brother and also gathering (along with moss) new ideas, new contacts that will come to fruition, let's say, rather soon. I'll be in touch.
